The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
in the Hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them. Rom 11:14
The Democrat Party for the last 50 years has claimed to have the solutions to all of our problems if they would simply have a chance. Well they have been in complete charge for the past six years and things have gotten worse not better. They can claim they inherited a bad situation which they and their cronies had nothing to do with or the evil George Bush cause everything, but why havent they solved all of those problems by now. Rather than whine about the situation which was really caused by them, but accept the market crashes and say this was a perfect situation to prove how well their big gummit solutions work.
The latest proposal by the President is to have a rebuilding of our infrastructure and another stimulus program, no really. He says if we invest more money it will get jobs going and bring about a healthy economy. If that were the case we would have a booming economy now with the multi-trillion stimulus we pumped in since he was elected. If that were the case then Greece and Spain should be doing orbits around the rest of the world while they are barely on the map. We have tried his plan as have many other destroyed economies and it always makes them much worse.
He and his Party are the result of a false science which says, If it sounds true it must be true.
This premise started with evolution and has been promoted throughout academia for the past hundred years. Academia declared Darwinism a fact over fifty years ago and defended it with the most Darwinian tactics available until it became a truth. Never mind it has millions of unexplained gaps you can drive a freight train through, it is how man was created and if you dont believe it you will be mocked and thrown out of the academic clan. Now this is how science works, it is not a search for truth but a consensus gatherer agenda driven theory and once they have their consensus will defend it to the death usually yours.
In Oregon and the West there has been devastating results to the lumber industry caused by the Spotted Owl myth. During the 80s and 90s science developed a theory that man and logging were killing off the Spotted Owl. This was promoted and a consensus formed declaring this a truth which needed to be cured. Their cure of course was to eliminate the logging in the west and set aside huge tracts of lands to save the owl. As it turns out its more aggressive cousin the Barred Owl was killing the Spotted Owl yet the logger was blamed to fit their agenda. The scientists and Feds hid this from the people until last year when it was reported by some independent scientists although it is too little too late now.
If we had true scientists who would find and report the actual truth however it was found, they may have found that loggers were actually helping the Spotted Owl by making more clear-cuts where grass grows and mice and rodents feed making for hunting grounds for these owls. Rather, we have overgrown weed patch forests which are dying and the Spotted Owl right along with them. Until we have proper forest management we are going to continue to have dying and dead forests burning up throughout the West thanks to bad science.
Even though we now know the Spotted Owl reduction was not caused by loggers but by a predator, the Obama administration in 2012 set aside another 15,000 square miles of California, Oregon and Washington specifically for the Spotted Owl as a payback to environmental zealots. This is bigger than the state of Maryland which the Federal gummit said you as a state or people can no longer use because we own it and will dictate its use or misuse. Not only was it set aside over the false science of protecting an endangered species which was not endangered, it was taken away from being a valuable resource to a state to use. This strangles these states and rural towns which rely on the forests as a source of livelihood while we see lumber mills and towns across the West bankrupted due to lack of logs. When are we going to give our Western Federal land to the states to manage and renew rather than be wasted by these East Coast tree worshipers?
The Federal agencies have mismanaged resources throughout the country and especially in the West. In states like Oregon where they own 53% of the state there is only one reason there is over 20% unemployment, resource mismanagement by the Feds. There are seven states throughout the West which have sued to have their Federal lands turned over to the states to control. The states can and will do a better job at managing resources as there are closer and more directly involved with those resources. They could allow the use and improvement of resources like the forests and have a gold mine which can be harvested and replaced every twenty to forty years as they become healthier and more vibrant.
It is time for the gummit to release its grip on the states and their resources. They have mismanaged everything they have touched from forests to Obamacare to energy and every other thing they attempt to govern. The closer you get the managers to the resources the easier and more efficient that management will become. There will be less chance of consensus science being dictated from a sterile Federal level and can be checked more directly at the source by the local authorities. It is time to move beyond the centrally planned model and move to a more dynamic state and county controlled plan. Not only would it increase employment, but would make the resources and economies stronger. It is time for the States to have their Federal land being passed on to them and their people.
Pray for America
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
I wonder if Wallace will ask Senator McCain about being described as a “senile old man” by the Arab press?
No show could find a singles Russian to come on?? Hmmmmm....
Good Morning All. As usual thank you AB for the thread. Only one guest on FNS? Great piece again Bray and right on target about the Spotted Owl. I remember way back when on Rush’s show he was discussing how the owls were making nests in a Kmart sign. Even had a picture. The Spotted Owl was never endangered. It was nothing more than letting the tree huggers have their way to garner more votes and money.
Thanks for thread A.B. Interesting video from Egypt on how they feel about O, McCain and Linda.
Wow! John McCain on a Sunday show! How rare is that!(/sarc.)
I want to ‘Thank You Alas’ for always posting this link on Sundays. I use it often and is very helpful, thanks again.
I wonder if any spineless Republican will dare to speak out against Obama’s speech yesterday, where he threatened to take away benefits from disabled veterans..
With a name like that, this person sounds like the kind of person who would jump up on a desk, yell "Allahu Akbar" and then open fire. And then the media and the administration would be surpised.
Republicans don't care.
Democrats don't care.
Nobody cares about McCain.
It is a good thing I didn’t eat anything this morning. If I had, it would have been all over the keyboard when I saw the very first ‘guest’ name — for the whole interview period on FNS.
At least the other programs have some variety.
I fervently hope that somebody on one of these shows asks others what the meaning of “decimate” means. It seems to be another word taken over and re-defined for an agenda, just like gay was years ago.
While Obama and the Dems have us distracted with low information stuff...he continues to purposely do things to break the will of America’s fighting men and women.
Obama warns disabled veterans prolonged sequester could put their benefits in jeopardy
DoD looks for ways to scale back BAH
Smaller raises, fewer troops
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has for the first time offered details of how today’s budget cuts will affect the military over the next decade
Hagel is threatening troop cuts to 380,000 active duty troops...no pay raises and freezes on promotions and PCS moves.
Meanwhile we get to hear about the inside details of the $7.6 million estate 44 is vacationing at on Martha’s Vineyard and the other social engineering crap he wants to shove down our throats.
The military at most counts for 20% of the entire Federal budget...yet we’re having to take nearly 50% of all cuts under the sequester. And NONE of the true money wasting projects are even touched!
Where is the outrage? Oh yeah...we’re obsessing over whether this guy can knows that Savannah, Georgia is on the East coast or the Gulf Coast.
McCackle and McCrazy.
Not watching McCain - sorry Chris.
